Photography in Fiction

Portrait of Dorothy Fellowes-Gordon by The Parrish Sisters

Portrait of Dorothy Fellowes-Gordon by The Parrish Sisters

If you’re looking for something to do in St. Louis this Saturday, why not come down to Central Library and see our wonderful Photography Through the Lens of St. Louis exhibit? We have some amazing examples of photography from as far back as the 1860s to the early 1900s. You’ll see works by Enoch Long, Jessie Tarbox Beals, J. C. (Julius Caesar) Strauss, and more. These photographs comprise a part of the Library’s collection of over 15,000 photographs (!!), which are housed in Central’s Special Collections Reading Room on the Third Floor.

We also have a display of books outside of Center for the Reader which highlights photography and photographers in fiction. So, feel free to wander through the exhibit in the Great Hall, pick up some beautiful photography books in our Fine Arts room, and choose one of our fiction selections for some weekend reading!
